DD--that is one of the reasons I don't like the latter PF material...the early Syd stuff seems so much more creative, odd, quirky, irreverent, simplistic...I know it could be critiqued as well, but I just like it...

Maybe like all geniuses, Syd had a few good yrs, and then by 25, the wad was shot...maybe he just had the good grace to pass from the scene...

I like the early stuff too ; all the pre Dark Side records . I can't imagine later day PF having a song as goofy and as charming as "Bike" ( I once sang it, in a very short stint, in a band I was part of) . Like the Anthem>Aox. Dead , they could put on record stuff that most "normal" people see as failed experiments ( "What's Become of the Baby," " Several Species..." of course I love this stuff ).
I like the latter PF albums, but just not as much . But The Wall, mostly leaves me cold . "Another Brick..." seems to tell the "kids" what they want to hear, contrast that to the hated "Day Job," which tells them what they need to hear... (!) Oh well.
